Osun state governor, Adegboyega Oyetola, has dared interested members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the coming governorship election to obtain nomination form and meet him at the primary.
He said primary election has never been a concern for him, boasting that he is sure of victory in the primary election.
Speaking in Iwo during an empowerment, Oyetola who was represented by the Director-General of his Campaign Organisation, Israel Famurewa, appealed to his supporter to prepare for July 16 governorship election.
He said, “whoever wants to obtain governorship form should go ahead. There is no problem in the primary election. We are sure of victory,” he added.
He thanked the foundation for the support and contribution to the improvement of standard of living in the area.
Responding to the demand for zoning of governorship to Osun West come 2026, Oyetola urged the people of the zone to work for his victory to be able to demand their turn.
Speaking, a chieftain of the defunct National Party of Nigeria (NPN), Chief Abiola Ogundokun, expressed hope that the feud between Governor Oyetola and his predecessor, Rauf Aregbesola, will end soon.
The Special Adviser to Governor Oyetola on Political Matter, Hon. Debo Badirudeen warned those parading themselves as representatives of Iwo to desist from spoiling the name of the town.
He said the people of Iwo have agreed to support Oyetola for a second term to be able to demand governorship come 2026.
“We have agreed to let Oyetola do his second term because we are determined to produce candidate come 2026. The support we have for Oyetola is for our benefit. We believe we would have every right to produce the governor of Osun in 2026,” he added.
The Secretary of APC in the state, Alhaji Kamorudeen Olabisi Alao, who is also from the zone, urged party executives to unite and stand with Oyetola during the primary and governorship election.
